Cleaning shades

Anyone have any good suggestions on cleaning the bi-fold shades on the inside of a motorhome ?

Blind cleaning companies are well versed in removing and rehanging blinds. If that's not an option, thoroughly vacuum with hand attachment, then spray with mineral spirits (any hardware store will carry it and fill hand held bottle sprayer) and vacuum again.

If you are referring to the day night shades popular in older coaches. I removed ours and soaked them in Oxyclean then rinsed well carefully laid them out to dry.
Removed a lot of dirt doing this.

We did the exact procedure on our old Winnie. Removed them all, light vacuum first, Oxyclean in a spray bottle and a very soft brush. Picked a very nice warm day and rigged up a 2x4x8 to hang them on. I used a clean garden sprayer with hot fresh water to gently rinse them off. You wouldn't believe the crud that came out of them.
